Navigation etc.

Also available at Google Books here though without preface and in a somewhat different form, with Greek and English text. (Is this Ancient or Modern Greek? Will not language-tag until sure. Also can't find other than a speaking part for Jocasta in the score- maybe need to look harder - anyhow, not sure of exact composition of soloists...)

It's Ancient Greek. TheGrassGuy 15:06, 7 January 2020 (CET)
